The Mechanical Egineering Department is among the first departments established in IAUM and in 1993 was confirmed by cultural revolution base. The department has had activity in continuing and discontinuing BSc level with two orientations of Heating and Flowing and Solid Designing and also in MSC level with two orientations of Energy Conversion and Applied Designing and the number of students in 2009 is more than 1851 students.
First scientific ranks in the university
Up to 2008 ,2655 mechanic engineer, in the orientations of Energy Transformation, Applied Designing, Heating and Flowing, Solid Designing and Automobile Mechanic, have graduated. Most of the graduates were attracted by Iran industries, especially industries of Khorasan province, and chiefly work in automotive, automobile making, parts making, mould making, powerstations, refineries and gas and petroleum industries.
In 2005 and 2006 about 33 percent of the Mechanics Department graduates of IAUM were admitted in higher complementary levels in Azad and state university of the country and in this regard the department has achieved the first rank throughout IAUM because of the highest the number of admitted students.
